IT GETS BETTER Project Comes to the Moore, Beginning 2/18

The It Gets Better theater project is described as the upbeat, exciting, and funny narrative and musical that includes moments of pain and pathos from the "It Gets Better" you tube videos and project, started by Seattle's Dan Savage. The work explores what "better" means for LGBT youth through stories, songs and multimedia on an array of challenging themes. With its unqualified support of all young people, It Gets Better creates and unites allies in solidarity against the pervasive (and growing) climate of bullying and teen violence.

A 6-member cast of the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) will partner with the UW Chorale, from the University of Washington, and over the course of a one-week residency, these artists will collaborate with other local performers, citizens, and educational and government institutions in building a community performance responding to the issue of bullying in local schools, culminating to a staged musical program at The Moore Theatre on February 23rd. The tickets sales from this event will help fund the weeklong activities planned to illustrate the importance of standing up against bullying and teen violence. Below is a list of the planned activities.
